80 Acres with High Fence Option
Illinois Land For Sale | Pulling off the main road and up the gravel lane gives this farm a very home-like feeling. As you drive through the swing gate the anticipation of what lies ahead is similar to a walk to the stand in late October. When you top the hill, to your left is a 9 ft fence running the length of the drive and on the right you are met by a beautiful tan and green 3 bedroom home with attached garage. Passing by the home you’ll see the 64 x 40 steel building with living quarters. The building was designed as a lodge and currently has 3 bedrooms with bunk beds, 2 living areas, a full bathroom, and a loft with 4 beds. Entering the farm through the high fence you will immediately start to encounter deer tracks riddling the field. As you move west you will come to the 1.5-acre fully stocked pond. Continuing west into the main field of the property I couldn’t help but start to pick out stand locations in my mind.
Oak flats and deep draws lead out into the field creating natural funnels throughout the entire farm. The timber has a very good age structure from mature trees along with a great number of 10-15” trees. Walking the deep ravine in the southwest corner produced numerous tracks, beds, scrapes, and droppings. As mentioned in the title this farm has a 9 ft fence surrounding the property. It is currently down in 3-4 places so there are wild deer on this farm currently. This farm was fenced before the state of Illinois made it illegal, and therefore was grandfathered in. The fence could be repaired and made into an 80-acre pen, or could be left as is, or completely removed.
